Ok, lets try that again...


It's been so long that I guess that I don't even remember how to blog. (If you saw my last post, you will know what I am talking about.)

Anyway, I *really* do miss blogging. I was in such a groove with it, for such a long time and now I struggle to keep it going. I think about this dumb blog every day, and funny things happen, and different topics pop into my head, but at the end of the night, I am just not sitting down and spending the time to post it.

I'm finding that blogging is a bit like exercising. I found it to be kind of addicting when I was really into it My mind started to automatically organize my thoughts and experiences into a format that made it easy and fun for me to spit it out into my blog. I never felt like it was a chore, it was just a fun and a satisfying way to finish the day.

Now, after being away from it, my mind, as well as the rest of me, has gotten lazy. Instead of having an experience and remembering to take that extra picture because it would tie in nicely to my blog post, I am now lucky if I remember to actually bring my camera and am ambitious enough to dig it out of my purse....let alone use up my energy to upload my pictures and actually type a post. Also, since I have not been posting much, I feel a little guilty for not posting about birthdays that have passed, my sweet Valentine's Day and Pinewood Derby wins, not to mention that I'm only 1/2 way done with my "Bloggy Christmas Letter"...oye. :( And, since I haven't posted about any of those things, a "hey, guess what happened to me at Target today", or a "tale from the carpool line" seems mighty inappopriate... even though my random silly posts have always been my favorites to do. ;(

So, bottom line is, once again, I am going to vow to turn over a new leaf with my blog. If you are still around, I really appreciate it. I love, love, love hearing that people enjoy my blog and I really enjoy the comments. Feel free to drop me a note anytime, it will keep me motivated. Although I fully intend to follow through with posting on a regular basis, if you haven't already, you might want to click on "follow me" to my blog and any other blogs that you follow. Then through the igoogle, it will let you know which blogs are updated. It is really cool. I have it set as my homepage, so even though I haven't been blogging, I am still following lots of other blogs. It saves a lot of time to just go to the blogs that are updated, rather than jumping from one dead blog to another.

I think that I might go type my first post of my re-Grand Opening now.... :)

Love ya,

Its hard isn't it? I tend to take breaks, and it sometimes is ok for me to do that...but then, I start to miss it and come back full swing. :)

I agree with Cathy - YAY you are back! I've been in the same rut. It's all about time and making it.
